I'm >sure there are a few here who'd get involved. Any takers? It's funny; I've been kicking the idea around in my head for a while. Given my present state of trying to build a record label, it's impossible for me to consider getting actively involved in (another) start-up venture. On the other hand, I'd really want to be involved. The big issue is: is there a market out there? So far the returns on Jam/Plex etc have indicated not. If someone asked me if I'd be involved in a company that made *only* looping devices, I'd say no. Too risky. But a new effect/processing company with a little bit of creative vision *is* a real option. Consider how many people hate Digitech/Alesis/etc but still buy the stuff anyway. Well, what if someone new came in and answered the issues, made the right products at the right prices. Thought about the user for a change. Hmmm....
